Extended (four legged) family photos

Your wedding is a day to share with the ones you love so naturally your dog is included. There are a number of ways that you can include your four legged family member in your celebration. The most obvious (walking down the aisle) requires a certain level of calm obedience. Be honest with yourself about what your dog can handle.  No matter how you choose to involve them, don’t forget about water, walks and a quiet zone.  Even the most mellow of furry friends can get stressed on such a busy day.

Below, a few of my favorite moments with dogs. They are most often the candid, quiet reflections.katie_paul_0363
